The utility (storm Sewer) and concrete street reconstruction is necessary on West Evergreen Drive to accommodate new development and increased traffic load. The proposed work includes new concrete pavement with integral curb and gutter, storm sewer, and grass restoration areas. The new pavement on West Evergreen Drive will be comprised of two 12-foot-wide drive lanes and one 14-foot-wide common center turning lane.
Asphalt pavement replacement is needed on Park Avenue because it has reached the useful life expectancy of the pavement. Because the utilities are in relatively good condition with curb and gutter requiring only spot repairs it is best to replace the asphalt pavement and not install a 50-year concrete pavement over the ageing infrastructure. With asphalt being approximately half the cost of concrete at approximately half the life cycle, it is economically more feasible to provide a pavement that will last 20 to 25 years to better match with the utilities life cycle before a total reconstruction is necessary. The existing condition of the asphalt pavement has reached a level where maintenance continues to increase without extending the pavement life. A pavement overlay is not an option due to the current condition of the pavement and subbase. To prevent further surface water intrusion and to correct sub-base rutting the pavement will be removed and subbase regraded and compacted prior to placement of granular base material and new asphalt pavement.
